This is a cruel thing to do to somebody.

According to a news release from the Okaloosa County (Fla.) Sheriff's Office, authorities in Florida are searching for a man who reportedly impersonated a police officer and told a woman her husband had been killed in a traffic crash during a visit to her residence.

The woman's husband was not killed in a traffic crash, and was at work at the time of the incident, according to the news release.
